Red Gold Tomatoes is a family owned Indiana-based company around since the ’40s focused on growing local in the Midwest where true seasons impact the flavor of tomatoes (grown on numerous farms in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana).  All of their tomatoes are picked and canned at the peak of flavor so you get the taste of summertime tomatoes all year long.

My favorite way to use tomatoes is in this recipe I made up. I take a can of tomato sauce, a can of diced tomatoes, whatever spices I feel like adding, add it to some cooked ground turkey and let it simmer. While its simmering I cook up some basmati rice. When the rice is done I mix it all together and you have a healthy, budget/time friendly, recipe.
